Hotel Goldener Ochs
Ranked #3 of 9 Hotels in Bad Ischl
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 27, 2010

I booked at this Hotel because of its 4 Stars but in retrospect I do not know how they earned them. During my one week stay the bathroom was seldom cleaned and I was provided with only one very small soap bottle at the start of the week. Outside there was ongoing construction which started early in the morning and to make matters worse, the service was for the most part not existent. The front desk girl was rude, arrogant and unfriendly, I actually caught her talking about the guests with the Hotel maid. Their beautiful Spa is so full of chemicals I walked out with a migraine that lasted into the next day. If you want nice friendly people that appreciate your business and make you feel welcome, this is not the place for you. If you want to feel like you got your money´s worth, this is not the place for you. I would never recommend this Hotel to anybody (including my mother in law).

We've been in the hotel for a weekend in mid July during the mountain bike race in the area. The hotel is well located and offers an excellent breakfast, staff and lady owner was friendly and helpfull. Unfortunately our room was not made one day and even asking for the service they didn't come. Parking in the garage was a problem for the first night since there wasn't space for our car even if we were assured so.
In any case the stay was positive and the town is pretty nice.

Town Bad Ischl is nice but no for young couple. There are no bars or good restaurants and everything is open untill 9 pm.
We were in the hotel Goldener Ochs one night. Interesting and historical hotel, but very bad services. It´s ideal for old peoples.
In the room, there was old and historical furniture, but the room was clean. There was no air condition which is in the 4 stars hotel self-evidence.
Wellness area is new, clean and comfortable.
Service in the restaurant was terrible. In the hotel, there were a lot of old peoples and they had prepare 3 course menu. We wanted to order food from the card. They had not complete english menu, we waited for the food 1 hour without any drinks (waiters did not have time for us) and at the end, salmon with rice (16 Eur) was awful.
Breakfast were also bad - small selection, bad services...
At the end - historical hotel, old rooms, nice wellness, services aro no like in the 4 stars, absolutely bad for young peoples.

Loved location within easy walk of sites. Multiple spots within facility to relax, including spa/pool area with awesome views of mtns. Staff was most gracious, breakfast included in price was very good value. .Internet: small fee for access, and you will need your lap-top.

We had read all about the Goldener Ochs on line and in Nat Geo Travler so I had huge expectations about this wonderful old hotel/spa. I have to say we were a bit disappointed. The hotel was nice, just not to the level I expected. The staff was friendly, most of the time. The room was decent size with a balcony, but furnished in a 70's style. The spa was great, the food was very good and the town of Bad Ischl is wonderful. Don't get me wrong, this is a nice place, I just happen to think it is over priced and over hyped.
